How Much Can You Carry?

Wednesday, October 8, 2014








For the past two years, Floriane De Lassée travelled the world in search of the rural areas where the ancient act of balancing weight atop of the head is a common practice. Today, with over 70 different images collected, she pays tribute to the bearers of life. She also wants us to realize that the weight itself is a metaphor of the weight we all carry throughout our lives whether it’s physical or emotional. We all have a baggage and that is ok. Thought-provoking, don’t you think? xo

P.S: Heavy load.
P.P.S: A beautifully sassy GIVEAWAY is coming up!

The metaphor made such an impact on me. We often don't realize how much we carry till we stop and think about it.

That is a great metaphor and these images are mind boggling - I love the ones with the kids (both kinds of kids!)

These images are so remarkable and seem so surreal to me. Like how is it even possible to manage all that on your head without it falling or you collapsing?

So amazing! I've always been so intrigued by these images of people balancing ridiculous amounts of stuff on top of their heads. Love that someone else was so intrigued that they sought them out! What a great idea.
